I am a 59 year-old woman with health and emotional issues - I am trying to lose weight because being overweight is not helping me in my life and I am trying to start some kind of life over after the loss of my only child 2 years ago.

I am trying to try to begin crawling out of the darkest hole I have ever been in (and that is saying a lot since I am bi-polar and have seen more than a few dark holes). My health problems are bad enough and the weight is making things much worse. It is hard enough for me to feel good about myself and the weight problem is really making that exponentially worse as well. I am also beginning to believe that the weight is keeping me from getting a decent night's sleep and exhaustion certainly isn't helping.

I am hoping that by getting on this site (again - I tried it for a while back in 2008/9) I can start to keep track of what I am doing with eating and exercising so I will be more aware of it - hopefully that will be a start to fixing things, too.

I am also looking forward to reading about other people and their struggles and successes - it is nice to know I am not alone and that it is possible to get a handle on your weight.
